The short answer is YES as a part of UK Fire Regulation everyone requires to under take a minimum requirement of fire protection. We’re always happy to discuss or visit your sites for free please contact us and we can give you more detailed information.

Every property, Building or Site requires a full site survey to ascertain exactly what is required.  This is something we’re happy to do for your business FREE of charge.  However, as a rule of thumb, according UK Fire Regulations guidelines each floor of your premises requires 2 A-Class extinguishers & 1 Per 200sq metres.

Yes your extinguishers should be maintained annually and serviced to BS5306 British Standard.

Some shows may request that you have your own fire extinguisher for your stand at a show. This request is dependent on the risk assessment that will have been carried out for each individual event by the organisers. If you have been requested to take an extinguisher and have agreed to the terms and conditions of the event you must take one with you.

All British Standard Kitemarked extinguishers are RED.  The chromes ones do not have British Standard BS EN3 classification.  In most cases you can use chrome ones unless your insurance policy specifically states all units must be manufactured to BS EN3, in which case you will be required to use Red units.  We would advise a consultation with your insurance broker first.
